Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Ji-Man Choi continues to improve his game, going 3-for-4 in a Double-A game.
Wearing a Pittsburgh affiliate, the Altoona Curve, Choi batted second in the lineup against the Baltimore Orioles’ Bowie Baysox at People’s Natural Gas Field in Altoona, Pennsylvania, on Saturday (June 26).
It was Choi’s second hit in three days, after hitting a double in his first game on the 23rd. Choi’s final line on the day was 1-for-3 with a run scored. He also had a walk and a hit by pitch온라인카지노.
After singling to left field in his first at-bat, Choi drew an eight-pitch walk in his third at-bat and came around to score on Matt Gorski’s single with one out.
Choi made up for it in his fourth at-bat. He led off the inning with a single up the middle on a wild pitch. He advanced to second on a groundout by the next batter, but Abrahan Gutierrez and Gorski struck out to end the threat.
In the bottom of the eighth inning, Choi reached base on a passed ball, completing a three-hit game. Choi’s performance helped the team to an 8-4 victory.
In mid-April, Choi was placed on the injured list (IL) with a sore left ankle and was diagnosed with an Achilles tendon injury in his left foot, requiring eight weeks of rehabilitation. After two months of rehabilitation, Choi will continue to work on his game and prepare for a big league call-up.
